"The Great Corn Adventure is a good website created by the University of Illinois Extension that shares all sorts of informative information about corn in an animated, audio format (also available in Spanish). This presents well on the SMARTBoard and there are some interactive features during the show. You can also have the students touch the arrow to advance the show which addresses cause/affect objectives. ENJOY!"
